Leighton Art Centre Reviews
My wife and I decided to visit the Leighton Art Centre on a Saturday as we took a drive in the country. The Gallery and Museum features a brief overview of the history of A.E. and Barbara Leighton... more »
We stopped in with a guest on our way to Bragg Creek in the summer. Leighton Art Centre is in the middle of no where but a great venue to appreciate art and the view of the Rockies in the distance... more »
I took my class for a program in December and it was amazing and definitely worth it! We did the clay owls project. The students got a tour of the museum, a nature walk, a sketchbook plush a drawing lesson, and an art project. The views are stunning and the program and instructors are great! I would recommend teachers do their programs with their classes.
Love this place, it is so peaceful just minutes. I am of course biased as I do have art there also. It provides an awesome venue for artist of all levels. The staff are so positive and friendly. The Christmas in the country sale right now is a great show and a great afternoon for the family.
